The street numbers 49 to 58 on the Bäckerbreitergang form a closed ensemble of simple, restored half-timbered houses from the 18th to 19th centuries and are characteristic for this residential area.

The houses on the Bäckerbreitergang remind passers-by of life in the 17th century. At that time, half-timbered houses were built especially for the lower classes; today, they are among the last preserved examples of this way of life due to their narrow construction, also known as “Gängeviertel”, or alley quarter. Sometimes, the flats could only be reached through narrow alleys between the half-timbered houses or through inner courtyards. The road pavement still hints at how narrow these alleys actually were.

Hamburg Michel St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!

The main church at Klosterstern. St. Nikolai

St. Nikolai - the name represents an extremely changeful church history. The principal church of St. Nikolai was built during the time of the settlement of the new city in the 12th century, and by 1353 had been extended to become a triple naved basilica in the Gothic style - it was then completely destroyed in the Great Fire of Hamburg in 1842.
